Description
The three birds perched on the side of this exquisite vessel have plumage which is at one with the decorative geometry. The birds inch cautiously toward the rim, hoping to steal a peck at the pot's long vanished contents. A splendid example of Casas Grandes style, which brings abstract patterns together with a keen appreciation for nature. - (PF.0943)
